Company foundation

If you plan to run your own business, you must choose how to get started. Are you alone or are there several of you who want to start. The choice of company form is decisive for the framework conditions you get. We can assist with starting a sole proprietorship (ENK) or limited liability company (AS). It is important that you start at the earliest with starting up and not wait until the service or product you are going to sell is ready for the market. This means that costs in the planning phase itself can also be expensed.

Sole proprietorship (ENK)

A sole proprietorship is a form of organization where a natural person is responsible for business operations. This person is fully personally responsible for debts and obligations related to the business. The owner decides everything in the enterprise and there are no special rules or laws on sole proprietorships.

No equity is required to start, but all business profits are taxed as personal income. When there is a need to secure more equity or to bring in new partners, a tax-free transformation of a sole proprietorship into an AS can be carried out.

Joint stock company (AS)

A limited company is an independent legal entity. The owners who are shareholders are not personally liable for the company’s obligations. In a limited company, a distinction is made between the owners’ and the company’s finances. This means you risk not having to cover the company’s obligations. As a manager of a limited company, you are employed in your own company and can optimize your salary and profits. You decide yourself how the profit is to be disposed of either as reinvestment in your own company or in other businesses without taxation. Only when you withdraw the profit in the form of a dividend do you have to pay tax.

In an AS, the equity is at least NOK 30,000 and can be used to cover all the costs related to the establishment of the company.
